Turning Points: The Role of the Volta in Poetry

Although we associate the term "volta" with the traditional sonnet form, it has been used with great success by many contemporary poets. Marking a shift in the poem?s tone, subject, or logic, the volta has been compared to a change of key in music. In this workshop, we will explore how turning your attention in a new direction can open up a poem, allowing it to leap to another level of significance or meaning.
